Banality_banksy

Earlier this week we posted about "The Banality of the Banality of Evil". Street artist Banksy bought a painting at a NYC thrift shop, painted a Nazi into it, and returned it to the thrift shop for them to do with as they pleased.

The thrift shop was Housing Works on E. 23rd street, an AIDS charity which also helps the homeless.

The painting sold yesterday for $610,000. Quite a donation.

As you may have heard, for yesterday's work in his NYC-based 'Better in Than Out' exhibition, Banksy bought a painting at a thrift shop, painted a Nazi into it, and returned it to the thrift shop with the title "The Banality of the Banality of Evil".

That charity thrift shop was Housing Works on E. 23rd street, which works to end AIDS and homelessness. Housing Works is currently auctioning off the Banksy.

As of this posting, with a day to go in the auction, the leading bid is $211,311.00

Quite a gift from Banksy.
